Participants from over 28 countries are expected this year namely Anguilla, Antigua, Bahamas, Barbados, British Virgin Islands (BVI), Canada, Commonwealth of Dominica, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Guyana, Jamaica, Luxembourg, Nevis, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Saba, St Barts, St Eustatius, St. Lucia, St Maarten/St Martin, St Vincent, Suriname, Switzerland, Trinidad, Turks and Caicos, United Kingdom, US and US Virgin Islands.

“The purpose of the Meetup is to gather audiences of differing backgrounds to inspire each other. If two different parties have access to the same information, it creates a better understanding and better chance for co-operation, new ventures and new opportunities”, added Bud Slabbeart.
